Hobiennale 2019: Here Lies Lies

Opens 15-11-2019,  closes 23-11-2019

Bond Store Basement

The exhibition Here lies lies is an intersection of artist Mandy Quadrio’s engagement with land, sea and her relationship to colonising outcomes.

Mandy’s sculptures draw reference from traditional boat forms, whilst harsh steel wool overlays address the brutalities of colonisation. These structures become literal and metaphorical vessels for navigating a complex and contorted history.

Here lies lies brings attention to the myths, denials and blatant inaccuracies of our history. Specifically here on country in tebrakunna (north-east Tasmania), where Mandy’s history rests and is still lied about. She works to journey her story forward.

Here lies lies is presented at TMAG by Outer Space (QLD) as part of Hobiennale 2019. Join us for a late night opening event on Friday 15 November from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm. An artist talk will also take place on Sunday 17 November at 2:00 pm.
